Teaching and Learning shapes and inspires exceptional learning environments inside and outside the classroom by developing and supporting teaching excellence and innovation, holistic student success programs, and experiential learning opportunities.
Led by Kristiina Montero, acting associate vice-president of Teaching and Learning, our professional teams contribute to a culture where teachers and learners feel highly encouraged, valued and empowered.
This intentional collaboration of inclusive teaching and learning supports is part of what makes Laurier unique.
Student success is a key focus of all of our efforts in Teaching and Learning.
Teaching and Learning facilitates advising, retention and outreach programs for all students and provides transition programs, such as Laurier 101, for incoming students and their families. We bring faculty, staff, students and community together to align career development and experiential learning, and to support curricular workplace partnerships and programming.
With focused supports available directly to faculty, academic staff, and graduate and undergraduate students, Laurier’s breadth of instructors can explore new approaches to their teaching practice with flexible learning spaces, just-in-time resource videos, a diverse range of events, workshops, and professional consultation services.
Highly engaging experiences delivered by faculty in the classroom and online paired with excellence in co-curricular opportunities are all underpinned by a wide variety of services to help Laurier students reach their full academic potential.
Laurier has a proud history of instructional excellence and creating engaging learning environments that promote exceptional student experiences.
Instructors at Laurier have been recognized for their dedication, engagement and passion for teaching through a number of high-profile awards at the institutional, provincial, national and international level.
Teaching and Learning works alongside faculty, staff, students and community to align accessibility and learning technologies with online programming, entrepreneurship and career development efforts.
In 2016, an independent national study found Laurier has the top student career services model among Canadian postsecondary institutions. The same year, Laurier was designated a Changemaker Campus by Ashoka U for being a global leader in social entrepreneurship and social innovation education.
From the innovative learning spaces in our multi-campus communities to our commitment to providing the tools and expertise for engaging educational experiences, Teaching and Learning is an active part of your life at Laurier.
